Arizona Congressman Gabrielle Giffords was shot and killed along with several others in Arizona.  Giffords was conducting a “Congress on your corner” event when the shooting occurred.   Six others were killed as well.


The shooter has been taken into custody and let’s hope he gets the death penalty he richly deserves.


Congressman Giffords was a liberal, but that does not matter now.  No one should be the victim of violence because of their political beliefs and certainly a member of Congress should not be shot and killed on a street corner.


Take a moment to say a prayer for her and her family, as well as the others who were so tragically murdered this afternoon. 


At a time like this, it is terrible that we do have to think about politics, but no matter what the shooter’s motivations where, the left is going to blame this on the Tea Party Movement. Already on liberal websites, the far left is trying to accuse the Tea Party of being involved.  


While we need to take a moment to extend our sympathies to the families of those who died, we cannot allow the hard left to do what it tried to do in 1995 after the Oklahoma City bombing.


Within the entire political spectrum, there are extremists, both on the left and the right.  Violence of this nature should be decried by everyone and not used for political gain.


UPDATE:  At the time this was  written, all the major news outlets were reporting Congressman Giffords had died.   As of 3:10 CST, Doctors are now saying they are optimistic she will recover.   As tragic as this situation is, I think we can all be happy that the Congressman survived this terrorist attack.

Someone lost a mom and a wife.. a daughter and a friend. Prayers to all that were there with Congresswoman Gibbords.

I am sure that all Tea Party groups as well as gun rights groups will get the blame for this.

Yes, prayers up for all the families involved, I just read that the Congresswoman is in surgery and that one of her aides was killed...I guess it will all come out soon enough.  This is probably a lefty attacking a lefty but the media will carry-on about "right-wing extremism" and wail about more gun laws....that will only harm law abiding citizens not the criminals who care less about the laws anyway.

I concur. A senseless act that will somehow be blamed on those who oppose the left's agenda. The administration will somehow blame it on the conservatives and push for more stringent laws against gun owners.


As of 8 a.m. this morning she is still very much alive. I think tea party nation better check facts.
I think you should read the story.  We posted an update yesterday afternoon, saying she was still alive.
My Apology!
No worries.  A lot of folks missed that.
I agree with you Shamus.  Maybe we should continue engaging ours eyes and ears before engaging our mouths.  And why does it always have to be right wing or left wing.  Sounds like this poor guy had no wings at all. I consider my self a conservative but I can not for the life of me understand everyone beating one another up on right or left.
This is heartbreaking.  My prayers go out to Rep. Gifford's family and the other families that lost a loved one today.  My husband and I are praying for the wounded. 
We all are praying right now...
According to Fox news Giffords is still alive.
